Hilary Bassett

Anna Marie Thron

Hosted by WCSH 6 news anchors Lindsey Mills and Clay Gordon, this event will be an unforgettable evening on May 31, 2019 to mark our largest fundraiser of the year for our important historic preservation mission.

NEW this year! Instead of an auction we are playing a game of chance: donate to historic preservation in greater Portland and earn chances to win a diamond necklace donated by Springer's Jewelers! Don't worry if you are the unlucky type - there is a prize for everyone!

Parking: Free at the Ocean Gateway Parking lot.

Attire: No dress code. We suggest something festive.
